I've been trying to figure out how to add new notification sounds. I've uploaded new ones into the My Ringtones folder, but these don't show up when I'm looking to assign a new sound to, say, new email notifictions. I've tried searching around for info on how to do this but so far have come up blank. Is this possible? I can't imagine it wouldn't be...

Move all sounds and ringtones to "sounds" folder under "application data"(sometimes this is under "my documents"). Unfortunately "ringtones" folder is useless. I never understood why, but I found this solution a while ago by accident when I tried to use a custom ringtone as a ringtone and a quick pop-up said must be in sounds. This solution also appears on WM's official site, which is good because I often forget myself. It does work.

One link is for Vista installation, the other for XP.
